Picture of the Month

Light from glow sticks illuminates some of the nearly 400 attendees of the 2013 Central Virginia Star Party, hosted by Dark Skies, Bright Kids and the Charlottesville Astronomical Society at Albemarle CiderWorks on Saturday, 2013 August 17. Children and adults enjoyed hands-on astronomy activities, telescope and binocular observing, shows in a mobile planetarium, constellation tours, and—in some of the darkest skies remaining on the East Coast—naked-eye viewing of the International Space Station and the Milky Way galaxy.
